Panthers WR Gettis, OL Bridges inactive vs. Bucs
The Panthers signed Bridges after allowing seven sacks in last week's 36-14 loss to Denver. He spent most of the season on injured reserve with the Arizona Cardinals before reaching an injury settlement and had been expected to play a significant role against the Bucs.
There were no surprises for the Bucs on the inactive list. Sitting out are running back Michael Smith, cornerback Danny Gorrer, defensive tackle Corvey Irvin, defensive back Keith Tandy, defensive end Matthew Masifilo, wide receiver Chris Owusu and linebacker Najee Goode.
